My Creative Space


 This week I've managed to squeeze in a little bit of making amongst the busyness.

I'm still working on the Pixelated 1up Mushroom blanket (if you don't have a clue what I'm going on about, visit here).  I decided to put all the granny squares I've made so far on the deck yesterday to see how much I've done. The mushroom is nearly finished!  Now I just need to decided what colour to make the rest of the blanket and put it all together (any suggestions on a colour?  I was thinking dark green maybe?).


Also whipped up another mustache mug cozy for a friend.  I love these!!

  8. That is awesome! I'm almost tempted to take up crochet so I can make one too... almost. I think the colour depends on how colourful his room is already... so many colours would work with it, sky blue, canary yellow, red...

  27. My boys would just love that! I can see a series ahead!
    I think dark green would look great, or a blue as someone suggested.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Um, I need to learn to crochet. That is too amazing.
    I was going to suggest sky blue also, but I think the comments have changed my mind and perhaps something neutral really would be better. Any colour will be amazing. What a lucky boy!

  36. Very cool, I think mario sky blue would look fab as a background (or any of the colours found ingame for that matter)

    ReplyDelete
  37. Haha, love the mushroom! I might get inspired to make some nerdy, nostalgic pixel art from yarn myself. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  38. Wow! how very clever of you. This is going to look amazing when it's all finished!

    ReplyDelete
  39. My son would find it so awesome! Dark greeen as a back sounds great but what do you think of red, the shirt of the boy shows how well it matches, just an idea :o)

    What size hook did you use and did you only do two rows of a granny square for each square? I can't seem to find the materials needed or the instructions to start a blanket or rug like this.

    1. I can't remember what hook size I used - probably around 5-6mm? Yes, only two rows for each square.

    Do you think if I have smaller ply wool it would be ok to do 3 rows for each square? 2 doesn't seem big enough.. hmm... I'm using size 4mm hook.

    1. Hi. Yes, I did three rows for each of mine (probably hard to see in pic). All the best!

      Thanks so much for responding, I really appreciate it as I was worried about going ahead not knowing if I was doing the right thing. I thought you had only done 2 rounds.
      Thanks again. Time to hop to it! !
